NEIGHBORHOOD VBS! Join Host Families from The Bible Chapel for games, hands-on activities, and relevant Bible teaching… just like Vacation Bible School held at the church. This is a safer model for this year due to the current social distancing procedures.
- Register for a VBS position from June 8-30, 2020. Volunteer registration closes July 6. Due to clearance requirements, late volunteer registrations cannot be accepted. You will be matched with a host family in your area.
- Once you register, if you do not have your Pennsylvania state-required clearances, you will receive an email to do so (the link will come from a company named Justifacts). If you receive an email from Justifacts regarding clearances, please follow the instructions to obtain your criminal background clearance, PA child abuse clearance, and FBI fingerprinting. By law (PA Act 153), we cannot accept volunteers ages 18 and older who do not have clearances. (Note that you may be exempt from the fingerprinting if you meet certain criteria.) If you have any questions regarding clearances, please contact Deanna Kratt,
- Review the following training information: Flipper Flapper Instructions, How to Use an Epi-Pen, and Epi-Pen Instructions.
- If training is permitted to take place in person, childcare will be provided.
CHILD REGISTRATION Information:
We care deeply for every person and their well-being. Therefore, many precautions will be implemented for the safety of children, families, volunteers, and our staff. Masks will be provided if needed. We will ask each child to bring a beach towel with him/her to help provide a social distance boundary during Bible Adventures and Imagination Station. Also, a strict health policy will be enforced.
Register for your child from July 1-31, 2020. Registration closes July 31. You will be matched with a host family in your area. There is no fee for Neighborhood VBS. The exact address of your host families and details for the week of VBS will be emailed to you at the end of July.
